Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.”

Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it.

NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance.

“It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.”

The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud.

Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.”

The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed.

The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy.

Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths this country is built on. Will our culture wake up before it’s too late?

Sondland Says There Was a ‘Quid Pro Quo’ From Giuliani For White House Meeting

Published

During Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, Ambassador Gordon Sondland, a critically important witness due to his close contact with the president on Ukraine, testified in a front of a congressional committee and stated in his opening statement saying there was a indeed a quid pro quo presented by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine involving a White House meeting and call. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: He also repeated that he “came to believe” the release of U.S. military aide to Ukraine was connected to the investigations, suggesting that he was not told so by the president. “I know that members of this committee have frequently framed these complicated issues in the form of a simple question: Was there a ‘quid pro quo?’” Sondland said Wednesday. “With regard to the requested White House call and White House meeting, the answer is yes.” In his opening statement Wednesday, Sondland underscored six key points, beginning with the role of Giuliani, with whom he said was directed by the president to work. “First, Secretary [Rick] Perry, Ambassador [Kurt] Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States,” said Sondland. “We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders.” Sondland went on to make it clear other officials were not quite comfortable to work with Giuliani, but “did not believe his role was improper at the time.” “Second, although we disagreed with the need to involve Mr. Giuliani, we did not believe that his role was improper at the time.…

The GOP Looking To Subpoena Hunter Biden, Ukraine Whistleblower, And DNC Files

Published

The top member of the GOP sitting on the House Intelligence Committee crafted a letter and sent it to Chairman Adam Schiff asking that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden, be subpoenaed, along with the whistleblower that kicked off this whole impeachment inquiry in the first place. Here’s more from Fox News: Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., along with Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, penned a scathing letter to Schiff in which they slammed the “sham ‘impeachment inquiry’” and notified the chairman of their intent to subpoena Biden and the whistleblower. Jordan, the ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has been appointed as a temporary member of the House Intelligence Committee. “The American people understand how you have affirmatively prevented Republicans from examining serious issues directly relevant to the issues,” the two GOP lawmakers told Schiff in their letter. “Therefore, to provide some basic level of fairness and objectivity to your ‘impeachment inquiry,’ we intend to subpoena the anonymous whistleblower and Hunter Biden for sworn testimony in closed-door depositions.” Nunes and Jordan added that they plan to subpoena the whistleblower’s documents and communications regarding the complaint, the records surrounding Hunter Biden’s role on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and the Democratic National Committee’s communications with Ukrainian officials and records relating to Alexandra Chalupa. This letter is the second one to be sent from Nunes to Schiff, informing him of his intentions to call up the whistleblower and Hunter Biden. Earlier this month, Nunes sent out his first letter to Schiff about wanting to speak with those witnesses, however, it still remains to be seen how many of the individuals on the Republican Party’s list will actually be approved by Schiff. A resolution was recently passed that grants the…
